Woodward Couldn't Raise Hand to Hi* Head for Two Long Years —Is Like a New Man Since I Taking Tanlac. "This Is the first medicine I have «ver taken that really does what they 6ay it will," said J. F. Holley, a well known Lexington, Ky„ man. **I hadn't felt like a well man for ten weeks and my whole system 6eemed to be rundown and debilitated. I couldn't sleep at night and my diges tion was so bud I couldn't eat. At tacks of headache were frequent and my nervous system seemed to be dis ordere<j. My worst trouble was rheu matism. My muscles seemed to he tied In knots. I couldn't use my right aim and I was Just about helpless. Some body persuaded me to try Tanlac and I got a bottle of that medicine. "Tanlac certainly Is making a new man out of me. I can now eat and sleep like I haven't been able t© do for years. My rheumatism is all gone and I feel strong and built up in every way. I am a well man and I certainly thank my friend who suggested my usifitg Tanlac." J. B. Woodward, another Lexington man who resides at 256 Rand Avenue, said: "I suffered from stomach trou ble, rheumatism and neuralgia for years, and before I took Tanlac I couldn't raise my left hand to my head. It had been that way for fully two years." "I have used Tanlac two or three weeks and am like a new man. My family and friends see the difference and it is the actual truth. I take great pleasure in recommending this medi cine Tanlac." There Is a Tanlac dealer in your town.—Adv. Yet Hope. "Waiter, have you forgotten me?" "No, sir; not yet, sir."

Arriving home, he waited till the family were seated at dinner and then banged one of the eggs at the new wallpaper. But the smile quickly faded from his face.

One morning nfter a visit to the zoo, Marian nsked to play "monkey," and her mother laughingly answered, "All right. I'll be the monkey while I dust. Now what shall I do?" "Oh, no, I'll be the monkey," said Marian, "and you has to go buy pea nuts To feed mo first." Enough to Eat. Barber—"How do you like our new oatmeal soap?"

"There's a Reason M a a Sf'VtÊlil I John D., Jr., Makes Princely Gift to New York - I N EW YORK.—When John D. Rockefeller, Jr., was a little boy and went t horseback riding and carriage riding—for this was before the days of motorcars up around the northern end of Manhattan island—he used t<> pull : up his pony or have the coachman stop C Ay the horses when he got to the top of a high knoll not far from Dyckman street and situated between Broadway and the Hudson river, and he would say to himself : "This Is a view that everyone in New York ought to see. And some day I'm going to buy all this land hereabouts and give It to the public as a park, so that everyone may en joy it." ! j j j I I j j ; i j I j j ! J \ He was right about the view, for I from that knoll one may see far up the Hudson—even to the crest of Storm : King mountain on a clear day—and away southward to the buy, and far east- j ward to Long Island, and even to the Atlantic sweeping beyond that. And now he has made good his boyhood resolve, for he lias made a formal offer to New York city of 50-odd acres of ground in the Dyckmnn j region for use ns a public park, provided the city will do certain tilings about connecting it with a certain other public open space, that of Fort Washington park, which lies to the southward along the river front. Mr. Rockefeller purchased three large parcels of property last fall on the far upper west side. The southernmost, and most valuable, was the estate of C. K. G. Billings, the noted horseman. This contains a magnificent resi dence as well as large stables, garages and a swimming pool. Next was what is known as the Hays property, and above that the Shaefer land. This latter property touches Dyckman street, at its northeast boundary. The whole tract is about two-thirds of a mile long. At the time of the sale it w-as estimated that the purchaser must have paid about $5,OCR),000, but Mr. Rockefeller said: "The total price I paid was nothing like that. It was within a few thousand dollars of $2,000.000." Merry Youths "Planted" Bones to Make a Story S T PAUL.—Whose skull? That Is the question. John Heller, chief o police of Shakopee, Minn., would like to know this, for Heller is perplexed perhaps even a trifle flabbergasted, by recent developments. In this town where Heller has been exercising rimnvr about ms & t "watchful waiting" for many moons, there was found a few days ago a leering skull and bones, all pointing to death and constituting basis for an in vestigation. From then on, according to the best information available, the disciple of Sherlock Holmes has fol lowed his pursuit, stalking ancient clues to fruitless end. One day found him so busily en gaged that an energetic telephone central was unable to announce any greater success than "we are trying to find him." Back of Charley Hart mann's butcher shop the find was made by pedestrians. Heller began work on the case immediately. About the first thing he did was to take charge of the skull and bones, and citizens said he turned them over to the coroner, Dr. H. W. Reiter. Doctor Reiter declared : "I haven't got thorn," which lends ground to the | belief that the skeleton, equipped with as many leg, arm, wrist and finger | bones as it could pick up, has reassembled itself and is waiting for a night ; propitious for a gambol on some tin roof. Meantime, to keep history straight and to prevent oven the shadow of a 1 blot from falling on the police chief's record, it is declared that the skull was : 1 a human skull, but it came from a college cadaver. As for the bones, they included five ribs of a cat, the thigh of a Plymouth ! Rock pullet, the loft foreleg of a dog and two vertebrae from a cow. Ail were placed in the ground back of the butcher shop by jolly youths ; who wanted to make a story. And they made it. | j j : ! j j i Hasty Action Costs Hotel Management $2,500 P AWLING, N. Y.—Mrs. Saidee Disbrow Hurd, wife of Robert C. Hurd, engaged in the real estate business, recently won a verdict of $2,500 in the supreme court at Poughkeepsie in her action for $20,000 damages against the Astor Hotel company, New York. The action was tried before Justice Platt \ iSf A suit of alleged humiliating treatment the plaintiff received from the hotel management after embracing her hus band at the door of her room on the evening of August 17 last. Mrs. Hurd was at the hotel with a woman friend. Her husband arrived at the hotel, and coming upon him un expectedly as she opened the door of j her room she threw her arms about his j neck and kissed him. He stepped inside the room for a minute and later j emerged, going by way of the elevator to the first floor, but returned again, j When they came out and walked down the corridor they were approached j by David Mitchell Pepper, assistant manager of the hotel. Mrs. Hurd and i her husband both testified that Mr. Pepper spoke scandalously to them ! and suggested that they depart before they could further compromise the j staid "rep" of his hostelry by their bold acts. When Mr. Hurd expostulated, according to the wife's testimony, Mr. Pepper said: "Well, if you are Mrs. Hurd and If he Is Mr. Hurd, that puts a different face on the matter." Mr. Pepper and the other witnesses for the hotel maintained that the in vestigation was conducted in a courteous manner and denied that anything was said that could be construed as a direct accusation of unbecoming frivolities or that any reflection was cast upon either Mr, Hurd or Mrs. Hurd. ; j ! j j I j j I I j ; I j j . . , , , . . and a jury, and was brought as the re- j •POISON -... LOOK OUT FOR YOtiR DOCS fcOTS "Poison" Warning Effective as the Real Thing K ANSAS CITY.—It was a nice garden Ernest A. Fuller had In the roar of his home—so nice, the pedigreed dogs and cats of the neighborhood made It a dally rendezvous, to the detriment and dilapidation of the sprouts therein, and the impairment of Mr. Fuller's amiability. So one day a week ago he spent some ostentatious moments in the garden and then went to the front yard and put up a sign with big red letters: "Poison in this back yard. Look out for your dogs and cats." And the garden flourished and Mr. Fuller beamed, hut the Persians and the Spitzes languished indoors, and such outdoor exercises as they got was at the end of stout, short tethers. A delegation of neighbors waited on Mr. Fuller. In substance, he is said to have commended them to the fuct that in these crucial times of food scarcity It behooves eacii and all to conserve the food supply. CapL John Casey of the Flora avenue police stution, being consulted, sent a patrolman to the Fuller home, in Mr. Fuller's absence. Mrs. Fuller took down the sign. Then Mr. Fuller came home and put it up again and betook himself to police headquarters, which referred him tc John T. Mathis, assistant city counselor. "There is a statute which prohibits putting poison around thus," quoth 11a this. "Any statute against the sign?" Mr. Fuller demandai "I can't recollect any," Mr. Mathis conceded. **Xben that's all right," said Mr. Fuller. "There never was toy pclsoaf j !

"When he was a young man clerk- j fng in a store, someone stumped him j a barrel | | ; 1 : ! ; >f rum off the floor and hold it up to bis mouth and drink out of the bunghole; and he did it. P.ut after he laid the barrel down again, lie spit every drop of the liquor out of his mouth. That goes to show how strong Mr. Lincoln was in his arms and also how strong temperance he was." Uncle Noah would have continued, but he made a fatal pause, and Cyrus Pelton got the floor. "I had an uncle, on my mother's side." he said, "that I guess was full as strong in his arms as ever Mr. Lin coln was, and even stronger in tem perance. He was a blacksmith in the town of Industry. "One time, when I was n small boy. Hiram Quint, one of Uncle Life's near neighbors, was building a big barn, and he had asked a lot of men to the rais | lng. . "In those days almost everyone j drank hard cider, and thought nothing j of if. but Uncle Life was dead set : against it. When lie came alone that ! day and saw the big barrel of cider j that Mr. Quint had provided for re j freshnient. he says, 'Hiram, your rnis i lng would come on full as well, and some chaps hero would be better off. i j j j j j i ! j if you would carry that cider down to j the brook and dump it.' "I saw Hiram wink at the hystand- j ; ers, and says he, 'I'm hardly strong | j enough. But if you are,' says he, I ! 'you're at liberty to do it.' j "'All right.' says Uncle Life, and he ■ j made for his blacksmith shop.

"Now, if you will give me a chance, j I should like to put in a word," said Uncle Noah, with a show of impa j tlpncp „„ so happpnccl that T was nt the raising of Hiram Quint's barn."

"Now, I always try to he accurate." said Cyrus, hitching uneasily ip his cnair. "hut I was only a little shaver at the time, nnd mebbe my recollection Is a little nt fault." "No, you were wrong.
